LIVING IN THE INFORMATION AGE traces the development, surveys the literature, and explores the impact of new technologies on the media landscape. The author examines conceptual and practical aspects of life in an information society through 50 articles that explore the utopian promises of technology's true believers and the dystopian views of technology's critics. Further, the reader encourages students to consider how the media industries are being transformed through digital convergence and corporate concentration.
